<h2><a name="peg_maj_comp">Pegasus Major Components</a></h2>





<p>The major components of Pegasus are: 





<ul>


  <li><b>Pegasus Server</b> - WBEM/CIM Server with interfaces for providers and clients </li>


  <li><b>Pegasus Repositories</b> - Today Pegasus provides a defined class repository


    interface and a simple file based class repository. It also includes an instance


    repository. Note that these repository were created for functionality, not efficieny. It


    is expected that they will be replaced with other implementations of the respository


    function as the need arises. </li>


  <li><b>Pegasus Client Library</b> - Tools for building Pegasus clients based on the Pegasus


    C++ interfaces and using the WBEM HTTP/XML protocols or directly interfacing with Pegasus.


  </li>


  <li><b>Pegasus Test Clients</b> - Simple test clients being developed as part of the Pegasus


    development process. These can be seen in the src/Clients directory and its subdirectories


  </li>


  <li><b>Pegasus HTML Test Client</b> - To aid in testing we created a test client for Pegasus


    that uses a WEB server (ex. Apache) with a set of CGI modules and HTML to allow the entry


    of Pegasus operations from a WEB browser as forms and the receipt of the response as WEB


    pages. This has proven useful as a test tool and can be used for a wide variety of


    demonstrations. </li>


  <li><b>Pegasus Provider Library</b> - Tools for building Pegasus providers using the Pegasus


    C++ interfaces. </li>


  <li><b>Pegasus Providers</b> - Providers to illustrate the use of Pegasus services including


    providers for test and demonstration. </li>


  <li><b>Pegasus Control Providers</b> - Common services for use by other Pegasus components


    to extend Pegasus capabilites. </li>


  <li><b>Pegasus MOF Compiler </b>- There&nbsp; standalone compiler (cimmofl) for MOF files


    that can be used to install MOF into the Pegasus schema repository and also to check


    syntax. There is also a compiler that operates as a Pegasus client(cimmof) There is also a


    tool to extract the MOF from the repository. </li>


</ul>





<h2><a name="peg_sup_plat">Pegasus Supported Platforms</a></h2>





<p>Pegasus is regularly tested against a variety of platforms by the development


group.&nbsp; The set of platforms and exact set of compilers for any given release is


documented in the Release notes for that release (see the CVS source tree root directory


or the Pegasus PEP defining the ReleaseNotes for any particular release).</p>





<p>Pegasus is supported on a variety of platforms.&nbsp; The list of platforms can be


found in the release notes associated with this release.<br>


</p>





<p><br>


</p>





<h2><a name="peg_dep">Pegasus Dependencies</a></h2>





<p>We have worked to minimize the dependence of Pegasus on other software packages and


tools. Currently Pegasus has the following dependencies: </p>





<p><b>1. GNUMAKE</b> - To simplify the building of Pegasus across multiple platforms we


have standardized on a set of build tools including: GNUMAKE. We are using GNUMAKE 3.79.1


successfully both in Windows and Linux environments. </p>





<p>GNUMAKE is available from :</p>





<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <a target="blank" href="http://www.gnu.org">http://www.gnu.org</a>


</p>





<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; NOTE: A set of the required tools for windows


platforms is available on the openpegasus web site.&nbsp; <a href="www.openpegasus.org">www.openpegasus.org</a><br>


</p>





<p><b>2. MU.EXE </b>- To minimize the difference between Linux and Windows for GNUMAKE, we


have created a utility called MU.exe. This utility is required for Pegasus make with ONLY


Windows environment. It is provided as an alternative to requiring a number of UNIX


utilities (SH, RM, etc.) on the windows platform and effectively provides the functions of


these utilities that GNUMAKE needs. MU is not required on UNIX or LINUX platforms. </p>





<p>NOTE: The binary for MU.EXE is not distributed in the Pegasus bin directory. You must


build it separately. MU source code is part of the distribution in the directory


src/utils/MU with its own make file. You must compile MU before you initiate the Pegausu


make. </p>





<p>NOTE: A copy of the binary is made available as a zip file on the Pegasus WEB site. </p>





<p>Again, MU is used ONLY if you are using Windows. </p>





<p><b>3. FLEX and BISON</b> - These tools were used to develop the MOF compiler and WQL


parser. Anybody intending to recompile the compiler or parser from scratch will be


required to have these tools. They are only required if changes need to be made to the


files for parsing and compiling. </p>


<b>





<p>4. DLCOMPAT - </b>dlcompat is a dlopen(3) et.al. compatibility library for Mac OS


X/Darwin.<br>


<br>


<strong>NOTE</strong>:&nbsp; The dlcompat is not distributed with pegasus source.<br>


dlcomapt is avilable from <br>


<br>


<a href="http://www.opendarwin.org/projects/dlcompat/">http://www.opendarwin.org/projects/dlcompat/


</a><br>


<br>


Again, dlcomapt needs to be installed ONLY if you are using Mac OS X/Darwin.</p>





<p><b>5. DOC++ </b>- The Pegasus documentation is taken from a combination of text files


and the Pegasus header files themselves. This documentation is formatted with DOC++ and


GAWK. These tools are required if the documentation is to be recreated but we expect that


only the core team will be recreating documentation. </p>





<p><b>6. ICU Internationalization libraries</b> - These libraries are used as the basis


for message catalogs for message internationalization. See the ICU website


(http://oss.software.ibm.com/icu/) for more information on these libraries</p>





<p><strong>7.</strong> <b>OpenSSL </b>- If it is intended to use SSL on the communication


protocol, the OpenSSL libraries are required.</p>





<h1><a name="peg_dir_struc">The Pegasus Directory Structure</a></h1>





<p>Pegasus is distributed as a complete source directory structure that should be


installed either from one of the snapshots or from CVS. </p>





<p>The Pegasus Directory is documented in<span style="color: rgb(51, 255, 51);"> <span


style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">PEP 191</span> </span>and listed in the Pegasus /doc


directory.<br>


</p>





<h1><a name="dev_with_peg">Development with Pegasus and Pegasus Tools</a></h1>





<p>ATTN: This section needs to be completed. It should reference the more complete


documentation. </p>





<h1><a name="cmnd">Commands</a></h1>





<p>The manpages for each of the commands are in rpm/manLinux/man1.Z directory (on CVS) </p>





<p>To see simple help for each of the commands, use the &quot;-h&quot; flag. </p>





<blockquote>


  <pre>Examples:


bin/cimserver &#150;s (Shuts it down)


bin/cimserver traceLevel=4 traceComponents=ALL (starts server with config flags)


bin/cimprovider &#150;l &#150;s (lists providers and their status)

bin/cimuser &#150;l (lists the users)


bin/tomof CIM_Config (extract CIM_Config from repository and present it in MOF type)


</pre>


</blockquote>





<h1><a name="docs">Pegasus Documentation</a></h1>





<p>The documentation is currently in preparation.&nbsp; Much of Pegasus is documented in


the PEGASUS PEPs which are the basis for approval of Pegasus functionality, changes,


plans, etc.&nbsp; These documents are openly available on the PEGASUS web site.&nbsp; The


preliminary documentation is not provided with this release. The current documentation is


maintained both as a manual created under the tool DOC++ in the runtime subdirectory


manual/html (see doc/devManual to create), as an api document also creatable from the


source tree (see doc/apidoc) and as other miscellaneous documentation in the doc


directory. Also there is a set of release notes. Normally the release notes for the


current release are available in the root source directory of CVS.</p>





<p>Note that the Pegasus WEB site at The Open Group will be the source of most


documentation in the future and today is the source of most discussion and design


documentation. </p>





<h1><a name="part">Participate!</a></h1>





<p>We are looking for people who want to join the Pegasus work group and contribute to


effort of getting this Pegasus off the ground. Please join the mailing list by visiting


www.openpegasus.org, and click on Mailing Lists. &nbsp;</p>





<h1><a name="inst_peg">Install Pegasus</a> </h1>





<p>You can install and run Pegasus on any of the supported platforms. The installation


process includes the following steps: 





<ol>


  <li>Download or checkout Pegasus. </li>


  <li>Verify that you have the required software. </li>


  <li>Set environment variables. </li>


  <li>Build the Pegasus runtime, test files, test clients and repository. </li>


</ol>





<p><a name="download"><strong>Step 1: Download or checkout Pegasus</strong></a></p>





<p>Pegasus is freely available from the open group's Pegasus home page: <a target="blank"


href="http://www.openpegasus.org">http://www.openpegasus.org</a>. To obtain Pegasus, you


can either check it out using CVS or download a snapshot image of the soruce distribution.


For more information about checking out Pegasus using CVS, see: <a href="#avail_of_peg">Availability


of Pegasus</a>. </p>





<p>Pegasus is not currently releasing binaries, but you can create RPMs using a script


included with the source distribution. See <a href="#bld_rpms">Building RPMs for Pegasus</a>


for more information. </p>





<p><a name="vfy_req_sw"><strong>Step 2: Verify that you have the required software</strong></a></p>





<p>Refer to the section <a href="#peg_dep">Pegasus Dependencies</a> and verify that you


have the software required for your Operating System and planned usage of Pegasus. </p>





<p><a name="set_envt_var"><strong>Step 3: Set the environment variables</strong></a></p>





<p>Before installing or running Pegasus, ensure that the following environment variables


have been defined or updated: 





<dl>


  <dt>PEGASUS_ROOT </dt>


  <dd>Defines the path to the &quot;pegasus&quot; directory you've pulled from CVS, for


    example: <tt>/opt/pegasus/pegasus-2.3.2</tt> <br>


  </dd>


  <dt>PEGASUS_HOME </dt>


  <dd>Defines the directory that will contain the output binary files. For example, if you set


    this to <tt>$HOME/pegasus_home</tt>, then the output will go into <tt>$HOME/pegasus_home/bin</tt>


    and <tt>$HOME/pegasus_home/lib.</tt> <br>


    If you plan on doing parallel builds, you may want to define a unique PEGASUS_HOME value


    for each build you need, that way the output of each build will be placed in its own


    directory, for example: <tt>$HOME/pegasus_home_LINUX_IX86_GNU.</tt> <br>


  </dd>


  <dt>PEGASUS_PLATFORM </dt>


  <dd>Identifies the platform to be built. Each supported platform has a unique identifier


    with the following form: <br>


    <tt>&lt;Operating-System&gt;_&lt;Architecture&gt;_&lt;Compiler&gt;</tt> <p>The following


    values are tested for the OpenPegasus release:<br>


    <ul>


      <li>AIX_RS_IBMCXX </li>


      <li>HPUX_IA64_ACC </li>


      <li>HPUX_PARISC_ACC </li>


      <li>LINUX_IA64_GNU </li>


      <li>LINUX_IX86_GNU </li>


      <li>LINUX_PPC_GNU </li>


      <li>LINUX_ZSERIES_GNU </li>


      <li>NSK_NONSTOP_NMCPLUS </li>


      <li>SOLARIS_SPARC_CC </li>


      <li>SOLARIS_SPARC_GNU </li>


      <li>TRU64_ALPHA_DECCXX </li>


      <li>WIN32_IX86_MSVC</li>


      <li>ZOS_ZSERIES_IBM</li>


      <li>DARWIN_PPC_GNU </li>


    </ul>


  </dd>


  <dt>PATH </dt>


  <dd>Add $PEGASUS_HOME/bin to your path.</dd>


</dl>





<p>Additional configuration: 





<ul>


  <li>For Unix builds, place $PEGASUS_HOME/lib on your LD_LIBRARY_PATH. </li>


  <li>For RedHat/SuSE/UL, edit /etc/ld.so.conf and add $PEGASUS_HOME/lib.</li>


</ul>





<p><a name="bld"><strong>Step 4: Build the Pegasus runtime, test files, test clients and


repository</strong></a></p>





<p>Pegasus includes several make files that enable you to quickly build or refresh the


Pegasus runtime, test files, test client and the repository. To use these make files, type


&quot;make&quot; followed by one of the supplied targets. </p>





<p>To build Pegasus, run the following commands from the root directory of the Pegasus


distribution: 





<ol>


  <li>Enter <tt>make</tt> <p>This builds all of Pegasus. </p>


  </li>


  <li>Enter <tt>make repository</tt> <p>This creates the repository, which is needed to serve


    data. To create the additional namespaces that represent the test support you can also


    execute &quot;make testrepository&quot;. </p>


  </li>


  <li>Enter <tt>make tests</tt> <p>This executes all the tests included with the Pegasus


    distribution, except the client/server tests. The client/server tests are executed


    separately from the above because they require the initiation of separate process for the


    Pegasus server and Pegasus client. To execute these tests, refer to the scripts in


    pegasus/mak/BuildMakefile. Refer to the prestarttests and poststarttests in this file. </p>


  </li>


</ol>





<p>The following make targets are supported: 





<ul>


  <li>&lt;default&gt; - Build everything. </li>


  <li>clean - Clean out all objects, libs, and executables. </li>


  <li>depend - Create the dependencies. </li>


  <li>repository - Create the repository in $PEGASUS_HOME/repository </li>


  <li>tests - Execute all tests (except client server tests). </li>


  <li>rebuild - clean, depend, &lt;default&gt; </li>


  <li>world - depend, &lt;default&gt; </li>


</ul>





<p>Generally the build commands are as follows: 





<ol>


  <li>There is a Makefile in the Pegasus root directory. Simply executing make in the Pegasus


    root directory will make everything. &quot;make rebuild&quot; will clean and rebuild


    everything. The &quot;make rebuild&quot; will also populate the repository with the


    current CIM Schemas. </li>


  <li>To test a fresh release, go to the pegasus root and type &quot;<font face="Courier New">make


    world</font>&quot;.&nbsp; This will build dependencies, build binaries, and then run all


    tests except the Client/Server tests. </li>


  <li>To execute the basic test suite that is shipped with pegasus type&nbsp; &quot;make


    tests&quot;. This also reinstalls the repository.&nbsp; Running &quot;make -s tests&quot;


    suppresses extraneous output such as the enter/leave directory messages. </li>


  <li>&quot;make clean&quot; removes all object and library files from the structure. </li>


  <li>A new build system has been added to Pegasus where a new CVS checkout is done, built,


    and tests are run. Do it by: &quot;make -f mak/BuildMakefile cleanbuild&quot; </li>


</ol>





<h2><a name="pop_peg_rep">Populate the Pegasus repository</a> </h2>





<p>Before using Pegasus you must populate the repository. Typically, this is done during


the buld process when you run the makefile. However, you can also do it manually after the


Pegasus has been built. 





<ol>


  <li>Register the MOF (Managed Object Format) file describing the skeleton of the object. </li>


  <li>Register a second MOF which only points out which lib*.so file to be loaded when a


    specific object is activated. </li>


</ol>





<p>The providers included with Pegasus are automatically entered into the repository by


running the following command: <tt>make repository</tt> </p>





<p>The 'make repository' in pegasus/Schemas does three things: 





<ul>


  <li>Generates the CIM Schema v2.8 in the repository (skeleton of CIM objects). To do this,


    it runs the MOF compiler on the CIM schema: <tt>cimmofl -Schema v2.8</tt> </li>


  <li>Sets up operations (shutdown, add users, etc) and CIM indications (SNMP, Events, Alert,


    Threshold, etc) internal to the Pegasus schema by running the following command: <tt>cimmofl


    -PG_InterOp</tt> </li>


  <li>Registers included CIM Providers (libOSProvider.so, libDNSProvider.so, &#133; ) in


    Pegasus (which are located in src/Providers) by running: <tt>cimmofl -PG_ManagedSystem</tt>


  </li>


</ul>





<h2><a name="reg_prov">Registering Providers in the Pegasus Environment</a></h2>





<p>Pegasus registers providers with a set of provider registration classes, not using the


provider qualifier as is done in most DMTF CIM CIMOM implementations today. This set of


classes is close to but not exactly the same as the current DMTF definition (See the DMTF


Interop schema, experimental versions starting with 2.6). This will be harmonized in the


future when the DMTF scheme is moved to final status.&nbsp; </p>





<p>Registration is performed by defining a MOF for the instances of the registration


classes that represent the porvider module, providers, classes, etc. to be


registered.&nbsp; The easiest way to create a new registration today is to copy from one


of the existing registration MOFs.&nbsp; See the providers/sample/load directory for


examples of several registration instance implementations that do work with Pegasus today.</p>





<h2><a name="bld_rpms">Building RPMs for Pegasus</a> </h2>





<p>The source distribution includes a script you can use to create an RPM for Pegasus. To


do this, your environment must meet the following requirements: 





<ul>


  <li>The root directory for Pegasus must be &quot;/Pegasus-1.0&quot; </li>


  <li>Your environment variables must be set, as described in <a href="#set_envt_var">Set


    evironment variables</a>. </li>


  <li>You must be logged in as the root user.</li>


</ul>





<p>To create the RPMs, run the script <tt>rpmBuild</tt> from the root directory of the


source distribution. For example: <tt>. /usr/source/pegasus-1.0/rpmBuild</tt> </p>





<p>This will result in and RPM file names <tt>pegasus&lt;version number&gt;.rpm</tt>. </p>





<p><strong>Note</strong>: After you install using the install using the PRM, you must


crate and populate teh repository manually. </p>

<h2><a name="note_bld_peg_lnx">Notes about Building Pegasus on Linux </a></h2>





<p>Pegasus supports many distributions of Linux. Refer to <a href="#peg_sup_plat">Pegasus


Supported Platforms</a> for more information. </p>





<p>To build Pegasus on Linux, ensure that you you have the environment variables set


(PEGASUS_HOME, PEGASUS_ROOT, PEGASUS_PLATFORM.&nbsp; For 32 bit linux, the definition of


PEGASUS_PLATFORM is normally LINUX_IX86_GNU. </p>

<h2><a name="bld_peg_win">Notes on building Pegasus on Windows 2k or Windows XP with


Microsoft Visual C++ </a></h2>





<p>Use of Windows 2000 SP3 or later is recommended.&nbsp; Pegasus is regularly tested on


both Windows 2000 and Windows XP using the Microsoft compilers.</p>





<p>Today we build Pegasus on Windows using a set of make files contained in the source


distribution, the Microsoft compilers (DevStudio 5.x is not supported, Visual Studio 6.0,


SP5 is supported) and the GNUMAKE make utility.&nbsp; Note that you MUST have the Pegasus <a


href="#mu_utility">mu.exe </a>utility compiled and available before trying to compile


Pegasus on the normal windows platform. The following is the basic setup steps for the


environment. </p>





<p>Setup the environment variables and path for the Micrososft Visual C compiler.


Typically this can be done by running the VCVARS32.BAT file supplied with Microsoft Visual


C++. (contained in the same directory as cl.exe). </p>





<p>For Windows, try the following for an example environment: </p>





<blockquote>


  <pre>REM call the standard Microsoft .bat for VC 6 setup. 


call 'C:/Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Bin\Vcvars32.bat' 


REM Set debug to something if you want compile in debug mode 


set PEGASUS_DEBUG=true 


REM set PEGASUS_ROOT to top of source tree 


set PEGASUS_ROOT=C:/cimom/pegasus (Note: <span


class="norm">The '/' characters are intentional and required by the Pegasus build system)</span>


REM set PEGASUS_HOME to where you want repository and executables


set PEGASUS_HOME=%PEGASUS_ROOT% 


REM setup the path to the runtime files. 


set path=%path%;%PEGASUS_HOME%\bin 


</pre>


</blockquote>





<h3><a name="mu_utility">The MU Utility </a></h3>





<p>In order to provide a consistent build structure across multiple platforms, we


developed a small utility to provide a consistent set of small utilities across these


platforms. The MU utilityis a simple utility that contains many commands. For example: </p>





<p><font face="Courier New">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; C:\&gt; mu rm myfile.cpp yourfile.cpp </font></p>





<p>You may type &quot;mu&quot; to get a list of valid commands. Here are some of them: </p>





<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; rm, rmdirhier, mkdirhier, echo, touch, pwd, copy, move, compare


depend </p>





<p>The MU utility supports globing (expansion of wildcards) so you can do things like


this: </p>





<p><font face="Courier New">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; C:\&gt; mu rm *.obj *.exe </font></p>





<p>MU is required to build under the Windows environment. MU is available as part of the


distribution of Pegasus.<br>

<h2><a name="note_bld_peg_mac">Notes about Building Pegasus on Mac OS X </a></h2>





<p>No problem. Just make sure you have the environment variables set (PEASUS_HOME,


PEGASUS_ROOT, PEGASUS_PLATFORM. For Mac OS X/Darwin, the defination of PEGASUS_PLATFORM is


DARWIN_PPC_GNU.</p>

<h1><a name="test">Testing a Pegasus Installation</a></h1>





<p>Pegasus includes an extensive set of test facilities as part of the CVS enviroment,


including: 





<ul>


  <li><b>Test Clients</b> - There are several clients that have been built specifically to


    test Pegasus, or parts of Pegasus, including TestClient, Client, CLI, ipinfo, osinfo,


    WbemEsec, etc. See the src/Clients directory for more information. These programs require


    a server complete with repository to be running.&nbsp; Note that some of these tests use


    classes and instances that are only installed with the &quot;make testrepository&quot;


    functions including test namespaces and extra classes and instances in those namespaces


    and additional providers from the providers/sample and proviers/testproviders directories.


  </li>


  <li><b>Sample and test providers</b> -&nbsp; Test providers exist for the major provider


    types in the providers/sample directories and the providers/testProviders directory </li>


  <li><b>Unit Tests</b> - Most Pegasus functions include unit tests for the functions.&nbsp;


    These are normally executed with the &quot;make tests&quot; command which can be executed


    at many different levels of the source tree from the top level to execute all of the unit


    tests to individual directories.&nbsp; Usually the unit test functions can be found in


    test directories immediately below their corresponding source code (i.e&nbsp; common/tests


    is the unit test functions for the common directory). Unit tests are executed without the


    server being operational and normally do not require the existence of a Class repository. </li>


  <li><b>An end-to-end Test Suite</b> - the directory &quot;test&quot; contains a set of


    operations tests that cover the major CIM operations.&nbsp; See the make file TestMakefile


    in the PEGASUS_ROOT directory to execute these tests.&nbsp; This set of tests executes an


    extensive set of fixed tests and compares the results against predefined results.</li>


</ul>





<h2><a name="inst_peg_html">Installing the Pegasus HTML Test Client</a></h2>





<p>This is a separate test tool that allows Pegasus requests to be initiated from any WEB


browser and that uses a WEB browser, CGI scripts and HTML pages for the formatting and


connections. It requires a WEB server, etc. The instructions for setting up this


environment are maintained in a separate readme in the CGI directory. </p>





<h2><a name="test_icu">Testing with ICU enabled</a></h2>





<p>ICU (International Components for Unicode) refers to the set of libraries that Pegasus


uses to run globalized. For example: these libraries are used to load messages in


different languages, format currency and numbers according to a specific locale etc. In


order to enable globalization in Pegasus, Pegasus must be built with ICU enabled, ie. the


right environment variables must be set prior to running &quot;make&quot;. Refer to the


GlobalizationHOWTO.htm in the docs directory for details.<br>


</p>





<p>&nbsp;When users run &quot;make poststarttests&quot; to verify the integrity of a


Pegasus download, a series of tests are run that require the cimserver to be running.


These tests currently depend on specific messages returned from the server. When ICU is


enabled, all messages come from the resource bundles and these usually do not match the


hardcoded default messages within Pegasus. These hardcoded default messages are what the


various test programs expect in order to complete successfully. If the ICU enabled server


is started without disabling message loading from the bundles, &quot;make


poststartests&quot; will fail. In order to run &quot;make poststarttests&quot;


successfully with ICU enabled, an environment variable called PEGASUS_USE_DEFAULT_MESSAGES


must exist prior to starting the server. Once this is defined, when the cimserver starts,


all messages generated will be the default hardcoded messages. This will enable &quot;make


poststarttests&quot; to complete successfully. Once &quot;make poststarttests&quot; is


complete, you should stop the cimserver and then undefine PEGASUS_USE_DEFAULT_MESSAGES. If


this variable is left defined, Pegasus will not be able to load messages using ICU


resource bundles.<br>


</p>





<p><span class="norm"></span><font style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">When running the make


tests command with ICU enabled, the PEGASUS_MSG_HOME environment variable must be set to


the home directory where the ICU resource bundles are built. By default the resource


bundles are built into directories below PEGASUS_HOME/msg, so that should be the setting


for PEGASUS_MSG_HOME.<br>
